Why are Laptops so expensive in Mauritius

I can’t understand why are Windows 13″- 14″ laptops so expensive in Mauritius.

 

The performance of the M1 is simply unmatched in the laptop sphere. How come they charging so much for older windows laptops? Sell them without the Windows licence and give a Rs 5000 – 6000 discount. Anyways, you’re looking for a new laptop around that price range, I’d recommend to go for the Apple M1 if you need performance.

If you have reasons to buy the non-Apple laptops, please feel free to share them with us.

Making Veg Burger

I love meat. I love BBQs. I love burgers. But I want to reduce my meat consumption for animal welfare purposes. So I decided to wander a bit in the veggie section. Let’s try a veg burger this time!

Price:

At Rs 69 a pack of 4 patties, it is not cheap. Compared to chicken burger at Rs 63 for a set of 10 patties. But I guess demand for this product is much less hence the higher price required to make a profit.

Easy peazy

Taste

It tastes really good. You do get the “feeling of full” after finishing it. I guess the MSGs doing their magic there. But yeah. Really nice alternative to meat ones. Will definitely do again 🙂

 

When will we be ready for Linux phones?

I uninstalled the WordPress app on my Huawei Y9. The application would always bug now and then.

But then I thought why not open the browser and see if I can write from there. And it works. The admin panel is web responsive and the performance is very good.

Yeah, I can also watch YouTube while blogging in split screen mode.

I use Facebook via the browser too. It works great. Maybe I can’t do live videos from the browser. Twitter is perfectly fine to be used in the browser.

I think as more apps become web responsive and browser api such as location and notifications become more common, switching to a Linux phone will be easier.

My Huawei Y9’s screen got cracked :(

 

I thought the screen was unbreakable but I was wrong. I owned this phone for more than 1.5 years. It fell multiple times: on the road, on the carpet, on the floor in my room. But it didn’t get a single scratch on the screen. I was impressed. And yeah, I didn’t put any screen protector nor a casing during this time.

However one day, the phone fell on the floor in the gym changing room. It was marble tiles and boom! The screen cracked 🙁

I am however able to use the phone like this, it is not presentable if you’re doing a demo in front of a client.

Mobile repair shops in Curepipe and Rose-hill are quoting me Rs 2500 – Rs 3200 to replace the screen while the official Huawei support centre for Mauritius told me it would cost around Rs 3200 to replace. However the will have to order the screen which will take 2 weeks.

Should I get a cheaper replacement screen in a shop or get the original one from the official repair centre? With the specs of the phone, it can easily be used 2 or even 3 years more. 4GB of RAM is quite good.

Anyone else got shocked by Mauritius Telecom Bills? Rs 600 increase!!! (MyT)

How the hell did our MyT bill become so high all of a sudden? We used to pay around Rs 1,000 per month. But now, it has become around Rs 1600!

vs

We don’t have the “Smart Box” thing. How the hell did they start charging so much? Plus, on the website, the 4K package is at Rs 1200 per month. Where does Rs 1,316 come from? VAT is added before the total again.

The aim of this article is to raise awareness of such issues. Now we need to mentally prepare to go fight these people for our rights 🙁
